Hi! I’m Arijit,

A Biotechnologist exploring Neuroscience

I am currently a final year Integrated M Tech in Biotechnology student from KIIT University. Currently pursuing my master's dissertation thesis as a research intern in the department of Neurology at The National Institute Of Mental Health and Neuroscience, India. I love to learn and explore different field of neuroscience like Clinical Neuroscience, Cognitive Neuroscience, Neuromusicology, Neuro Genetics, Neuromusicology etc... It was Dr. Oliver Sacks's works and his writings which has inspired me to pursue neuroscience as my research career.

Find out more about my organizations and publications in Resources page.​

Now coming to my musical career, I was in class 5 when I picked up Sitar as an instrument to learn. I started learning from Pt. Bivas Samanta. I was formally trained in Imdadi Gharana. But because of studies and pressure of board exams I stopped playing sitar when I was in class 10. After a break of three years I was inspired by my friends and parents to start again from where I ended. Currently I am a desciple of sitar maestro Pt. Purbayan Chaterjee, and learning music in Senia Maihar gharana. Now it is more than 10 years years of my musical journey and I am still learning it. 

You will also find my music videos in My Music section. 

This blog page is a merger between Science & Music. Because of my interest in the topics of neuroscience & music I choose to explore it and share my thoughts with you all. In this blog page I will also share my writeups on different books and book reviews. Also as scientific writer I try to share my words on the field of science in a informative way and I heartily welcome you all to read and explore them.

Hope You Enjoy...
